Learn Snowflake Science at Family Winter Weekend presented by GE Healthcare

Snowflakes. Beautiful crystals of frozen water. Trillions of possible permutations of exquisite geometry. How do snowflakes form? Why are no two snowflakes exactly alike? How do imperceptibly tiny variations in conditions cause an endless variety of these delicate, intricate, and mathematical structures?

Join us at Family Winter Weekend presented by GE Healthcare to learn all about the science of snowflakes. Using molecular models, you’re invited to assemble a snowflake and learn what makes each one so remarkably unique. Check out the video below to see Real Milwaukee’s Chip Brewster getting a crash course on snowflake science!

  • Did you know there are one quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) water molecules in a snow crystal?
  • The exact shape of a snowflake is determined by the precise path it took through the clouds.
  • The largest, most photogenic stellar snow crystals only grow in a narrow temperature range around 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
